A Bradenton adventure park lets thrill-seekers climb through the trees, swing like Tarzan and traverse thin logs 30 feet above the dirt. “Everybody’s pretty much in a great mood when they come out here,” TreeUmph! park manager Tom Wesche said. Vincent Dessberg makes his way through the courses every Saturday and Sunday. He keeps coming back for the workout. “This is almost like my church. I’m out in nature getting exercise. It’s fabulous,” Dessberg said.
Sometimes we forgot to take advantage of the fun activities tourists travel to the Tampa Bay area for. The Tampa Bay Water Bike Company opened in 2014. It provides unique ways to take in the downtown. “It’s a good way to get on the water after work,” said owner Dan Fleischbein. The whole family can enjoy this tour – K9s included. Bring a life jacket for your pup, if possible. There are water bikes and biyaks - kayaks with peddles. There are single and tandem options for both the bikes and biyaks.
Since 2001 a Naples not-for-profit team has worked to save hundreds of wolves and wolfdogs. The Shy Wolf Sanctuary, just under 2.5 hours from St. Petersburg, has been rescuing animals for more than two decades. When they officially became a non-profit organization, Deanna Deppen came on board to help. “Unfortunately, the human race actually creates a problem, and the sanctuaries fill a need,” Deppen said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
